Really should deep dive the weird language in pokemon at some point

@TK I have checked that back when the games were released. Unfortunately, it’s pseudo-text with a fancy alphabet. There is a set of letters that look uppercase, and a set that look lowercase. Every main trainer you meet has a name written in this alphabet, and the letters are choosen to somewhat look like their japanese name, but there is no fixed correspondence between letters and sounds.

@Feufochmar awww that's disappointing. I appreciate you telling me! Thanks for the information. It really feels like a missed opportunity though.
